The ogham stone stands like a guardian at the west end of the main hall of the Mullagh Heritage Centre.


This ogham stone is kept in the main hall of the Mullagh Heritage Centre. It's quite an unusual location for an ogham stone, all the others that I have seen so far were in a field or in an open space. An ogham stone with a white wall at its back and guarded by tables and chairs is a bit disorienting.
The ogham stone sits on a base dressed with a white timber cover. It's 95 centimetres high from the top of the cover, 32 centimetres wide at its base and 13 centimetres thick with the ogham inscription running from bottom to top on one of its edges. This inscription reads OSBBAR, which might be a Saxon name, though it's possible that part of the inscription is missing since the top of the stone is broken.
The stone was found in 1875 at the Teampall-Cheallaigh cemetery, it stood for a number of years in the graveyard of the St. Kilian's church on the other side of the road before it was moved to the Heritage Centre.
